I will be studying abroad in Florence this semester and will be living with a host family from Jan 28-May 16. I would like to bring a gift for my host family, but I do not know anything about them--I don't know if it's a couple or a single person or of they have children/pets/etc. All I know is that I will be living with Italians in a home a bit north of Piazza della Liberta.
I thought my school would tell me what family I would be with when they gave me my housing assignment today, and I was planning to use that information to help me choose a gift, but alas, I know nothing.
Any suggestions for a gift for my host(s)?
